wip rectangles



Inspired by this and wanting a little break from work I made this partial hurricane cover. I say partial, because my initial intent was to go all the way around, but time doesn't allow for that right now. In order to make the process quicker I eyeballed everything (no measurements) and made the sizes of the rectangles random. What did I use? Regular office printer paper from our recycle stash, an Xacto and a ruler.

Thank you for the warm anniversary wishes. :)

Now back to work!

  3. Thanks lucky! :)

    The hurricane is actually a glass cylinder that has no base/bottom. It's sitting on a table and the paper is on the inside of the hurricane (temporary - since that obviously isn't safe!) When I'm done I'll have the cover on the outside of the hurricane.

  5. Lovely! I kind of like that it's like a window and not all the way around, though I imagine it would look pretty all the way around, too.

  7. That is so nice and simple, I think I like the pattern on just a part of the lantern as well. Happy anniversary!

  8. Thanks Kirsten, Cherryskin and Lotta!

    Amy - There is no metal ring at the bottom. What you're looking at is the edge of the glass that's shiny and appears metallic.
